A Day at the EKKA

On Thursday we took the opportunity of Ocearna playing in the school band at the Ekka and made a day of it at the famous annual Brisbane show.
The day started early with some excited lil' girly's awake by 6am.

It followed by a brisk, cold walk to the train station.

We spotted a lou lou on the train
Then Finlay soon had daddy playin tick tack toe.Bout an hour later we arrived, we raced straight to where Ocearna was to preform,
God love the school band but those kids were there for one thing, Rides and showbags. Ok two things

But first things first the free stuff. Well we did have to get the most out of the free stuff, we were in for a long day if we were going to stay for the fireworks.

First stop was the baby animals and the milking sheds.

After all the animals and a bite to eat, next 'THING TO DO' chair lift to sideshow alley(rides)

First ride was the dodgem cars,never liked this ride as a kid much and still don't . Who in their right mind puts their hand up for a bit of whip lash!

Then Finlay was up for some games.

The girls love rock climbing and it was free even better. And they got a free show bag after it.Ocearna and Ursula made the top, but lil' Fini didn't, but she did give it a good go!

It was now approaching dark and we still had to do the show bag pavilion,lots of goodies here...

One last trip to sideshow alley to use up the rest of their funds on afew more rides and time to catch the train home...brrrrhhh!!

A great day was had by all
